Defining Space | Making Place (in process)

A collaborative project on site-specific dance and the socio-politics of space.

In the cities in which we live, space is defined by those in power; by politicians, developers, and property owners. This capitalist deference to the wealthy and powerful too often results in municipalities designed and defined by a select few, at the expense of the many who live, work, and play in the city. 

In part, an act of rebellion to combat this unbalanced paradigm, this collaborative project between Bard High School Early College Newark and KineoLab, a not-for-profit dance company, seeks to empower those not in power as it offers students the opportunity to define a public space through collective movement creation and performance.
